TOYOTA KLUGER Used Car Review

Known as the Highlander in other markets, the Kluger arrived in 2003 to fill the hole left by the discontinued Camry wagon. It was well timed, too: Ford released its Australian-built, Falcon-based Territory SUV just a year later. The Toyota Kluger has continued to grow in size and is now a seven-seater model only. It also continues to be powered by a V6 petrol engine. It was last updated in early 2018 with technology such as autonomous emergency braking and adaptive cruise control added across the range.

Pros

Cons

  • Vast cabin and big boot
  • Powerful and smooth V6 engine
  • Latest V6 vastly improves fuel economy
  • Improved handling with latest model
  • Third-row seating not especially roomy
  • No models have set benchmarks for ride or handling
  • Pricing was typically higher than equivalent rival Ford Territory
  • V6 can overwhelm front tyres of front-drive variants

SIMILAR MODELS TO TOYOTA KLUGER

WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR: TOYOTA KLUGER (2012 to 2017)

All-wheel-drive Klugers have had issues with front differentials that can fail early. Pinion bearings seem to be the culprit and it hasn't affected front-drive models. A whine when cruising at about 70km/h is the first symptom.

Beyond that, the main thing to check is the electrical gear on board. Power windows can become sticky in their operation. If they get bad enough, they can actually cause the window switch to have a melt-down. There was a recall for this, in fact.

Check that the sunroof works, and if it doesn't there's a complicated set of steps you can follow to reset the body computer and possibly restore the roof to working condition. The steps are set out in the owner's manual, so make sure that comes with the car and hasn't been removed and lost.

Check the Bluetooth for its ability to connect with your phone and the clarity it provides. For some reason, Toyota's Bluetooth is notoriously recalcitrant and not even dealers have a fix.
